An approachable textbook for medical professionals and others learning to use diagnostic ultrasound. This book has been written by a leading ultrasound educator to help medical professionals develop a sound understanding of the physics and technology of ultrasound. It is intended for use either in self-guided study or as a textbook for formal university and professional courses of study.Über den Autor:
Robert Gill was educated at the University of Sydney (majoring in Science and Electronic Engineering) and at Stanford University, USA, where he graduated with a PhD in 1975. He then returned to Australia and joined the Ultrasonics Institute in Sydney, a highly regarded scientific research organisation which made many pioneering contributions to the development of ultrasound technology. His primary role was as a researcher in diagnostic ultrasound, with Doppler and non-invasive blood flow measurement being his particular areas of interest. He has published over 70 scientific publications and book chapters, and 150 conference papers on his research and authored 4 international patents. He developed new techniques for the measurement of blood flow and collaborated with clinicians to explore a number of applications of the technology. Of particular note was his path-breaking work on the measurement of fetal blood flow with Dr William Garrett and his colleagues at the Royal Hospital for Women. In 1989 the Ultrasonics Institute was transferred to CSIRO (the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australia’s premier research organisation). Dr Gill gradually moved from research to management and he was the Deputy Chief of the CSIRO Division of Physics when he retired in 2005. Throughout his career Dr Gill has been active in professional societies. He has been closely involved with the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM), serving as Councillor, Treasurer, Newsletter Editor and conference and workshop convenor. In 1990-91 he was the President of ASUM. He also represented Australia on the Council of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB). He was a member of the editorial boards of several international journals. He has always enjoyed teaching and has been involved in postgraduate education throughout his working life. He has taught in seminars, workshops and university and professional courses for the University of Sydney, Queensland University of Technology, Yale University, ASUM (both the DMU and DDU diplomas), ASA (the Australian Sonographers Association), ASMI (the Australian School of Medical Imaging) and RANZCR (the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists). Since retirement teaching has become a major activity, leading to the writing of this book.
